TWO HAIKU - SENRYU TOO

A House Full of Cats

a house full of cats?
we learn to step carefully
we don’t have nine lives
our kitties are so trusting
lay down right in front of us

“pet me and feed me!”
(this is a silent command)
“and keep litter boxes clean
don’t disturb us while we sleep
always be kind to us pets”



feline loyalty?
“at times we might say that – yes
but don’t count on it”

feline royalty?
“who owns who is the question?
you know the answer”

OCTOBER FOR KIDS (haiku and tanka)

Two Ps in PumPkin
Two BIG Os in OctOber
and    apples galore

One October night
Along about All Saint's Day
I heard Satan laugh
T'was in a rural graveyard.......
Or.....was it the old Bijou?

October pig roast
Girls squeal and the fire pit POPS!
Boys have a leaf fight
While Mrs. and I keep warm
After dark the ghosts will come

October hayrack
A friendly kiss in the straw
Horses    country road

Autumn mystery
GIANT PUMPKINS come to life
They live at our house

The pool covered o'er
No swimming in October
Beneath the canvas
Crawls the Amityville horror
Or so big brother tells me

Children play and scream
in a world at war
school bell rings



MY POEM:  Tanka

Children play war games(5)
we laugh as they run guns raised(7)
Prized birthday gift toy (5)
church bells, war heroes  at rest (7)
Mothers sad good-byes, guns kill!(7)
